Homewood House Museum

n 1800, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, offered his son a generous wedding gift — $10,000 to build and furnish a place in the country. Charles Carroll Jr. spared no expense and overlooked no detail in the construction of Homewood, an expression of his family's tremendous political, social, and financial stature.

Visit today and experience the beauty and elegance of Homewood — one of the nation's best examples of Federal Period architecture and a National Historic Landmark.

Homewood offers individual and group tours and a year-round calendar of changing exhibitions, concerts, and educational programs.
